Niall Horan spent his weekend feeling supported and protected by fans all over the world. The singer, whose performance on ‘RTE Does Comic Relief’ was interrupted on live stream, was trending at No. 1 with the hashtag #RESPECTNIALLHORAN.
Former One Direction member, Niall Horan, recently sat down for an acoustic rendition of his mellow track ‘Black and White‘ on the popular segment to raise funds.
All was going well for the Irish singer-songwriter until the host of ‘RTE Does Comic Relief’, and his puppet friends, decided to interrupt and cut off Niall mid-performance. The main culprit in question is ‘Dustin the Turkey’, who decided to diss Niall, asking for the “other guy from One Direction”, mocking Horan, saying “We want Harry Styles”.
And while local viewers of the segment were amused, calling for more such content, Horan’s overseas fans took to Twitter to express their disgust and displeasure at the public interruption of his performance. Niall Horan fans trended the hashtag #RESPECTNIALLHORAN worldwide.
Check out some fan reactions below:
Niall and his team are yet to respond to public outrage over the incident.
Just a thought, though: Niall Horan is one of the biggest pop stars in the world. His participation in One Direction has made him a part of music history. He’s enjoying massive success in his new role as a singer-songwriter. His remix of ‘Moral of the Story’ with Ashe is climbing charts steadily. So, is a joke by a puppet really going to bruise his pride? We’ll just have to wait and see.
